Linda Walsh

Textile Artist

Linda makes textile art pieces for the wall - both framed & free-hanging. She loves stitch & finds the movement of needle & thread through fabric an absorbing occupation. She enjoys creating rich, textured & subtly coloured surfaces using dyed fabric, paper & chiffons. Patterns, natural & manmade, & manipulated photographs printed onto fabric form the basis for many of her pieces. Her work is often themed on places visited - quick sketches & many photographs help her to build up an impression of place. Also scarves, jewellery & accessories. She was Runner Up Baines Artist of the Year 2011.

Su Rogers BA9(hons) 3DD

Ceramicist

Each piece of my current range is hand crafted by using a method called coiling. Coiling is where hand rolled "sausages" of clay are joined then smoothed with a metal kidney. Colour is created with "slip" and patterned using a sgraffito pen. Many of my geometric designs have been inspired by the Aztec and African cultures as well as from the natural organic world we see about us. It must be remembered, these Pots are all individual and unique pieces of art which can be a focal point in your garden or home.

JoJo Rowley

Ceramicist

Jojo’s response to our busy hectic lives is to create ceramic works that exude a sense of calm and quiet. She hand throws consciously pared back forms and when colour is used, it is used singularly on the interior space of the piece and is chosen to contrast with the creamy white exterior. With her recent Agate Ware range she uses soft muted coloured clay additions to create cloud like patterns in the porcelain through which the eye can wander meditatively. The smooth tactile unglazed exterior of her pots allows a contemplative connection with the piece.

Stephanie Wright

Ceramicist / Sculptor

Exploring the potential of ceramic materials is never boring. Elemental materials and processes have a life of their own, and the challenge for ceramic artists is to work in balance with these forces. My ideas come from anything in motion: a flock of birds, a mounting wave, a propeller blade, a dancing couple. Although each piece is a snapshot in time, the speed of the motion each represents may be different. My role as a ceramic artist is to guide the natural forces of the materials and processes to communicate and celebrate the flow of nature through form.

Louisa Sullivan

Kiln Formed Glass Artist

My work is inspired by natural fields and meadows. Delicate flowers and feelings are created by hand printing and careful crafting, with larger pieces framed or mounted on an ash plinth. Many pieces contain copper wire words or phrases embedded into the glass. There's a wide variety of contemporary glassware on display from large platters to coasters. Something for everyone!

Joe Szabo

Glass Artist

I trained and worked as a stained glass maker in my native Hungary. Since moving to the U.K. in 2008 I have experimented with combining glass with ceramics and different kinds of metal. I enjoy creating contemporary wall art, mirrors, lights and garden sculptures. I also work on commissions designing and making panels for doors and windows. Thanks to the public’s support, I have been shortlisted for the Baines Surrey Artist of the Year exhibitions four times. I won third prize in 2011 and was runner up in 2014.

Pratima Kramer

Ceramic & Glass Artist

I work predominantly in ceramic and glass. My signature pieces have a distinctive – and often fetchingly quirky - ethnic nature, inspired by my intimate experiences of Indian life and its rich and vibrant culture. Each hand-built piece is spectrum of textures and colours. I hope to create strong sense of identity as well as celebrating ‘happy accidents’ I encounter through my experimentation, and subsequently giving each work it’s unique quality.

Naomi Beevers

Textile & Mixed Media Artist

I am a textile and mixed media artist. Inspired by the philosophy of celebrating the beauty of preloved items I incorporate them into quirky new objects of aesthetic value. My current body of work is influenced by the joy of the domestic and the innocence and humour of familiar birds. So a robin with sugar tong legs may be found perching on a vintage table fork in an old French cake tin filled with thyme. I am a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.

Sophie De Taranto

Jeweller

I started designing and making jewellery under the name Shutter Jewellery in 2015. I am a keen photographer and wanted to create wearable pieces with my images. I shoot looking for strong pattern and shape which will have impact on a tiny scale. The majority of my work is inspired by the natural world, particularly birds! I am always experimenting with different techniques to create new jewellery pieces and currently work with glass, metal, sterling silver and wood. You can find me at The Art Shed in The Medicine Garden, Cobham or see my website for other stockists.
